Kimpton Maa-Lai’s skyhigh bar is a good time for a fiesta. But, you’ll have to wait for the 6th, which will see festivities from 6pm to late, complete with a mariachi band. The Taquiza Taco Time deal will get you freeflow tacos and a margarita for HB 780++ per person. 

Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, 78 Soi Ton Son, 02 056 9999

Above Eleven

Festivities at Above Eleven kick off at 6pm and involve a tequila-focused cocktail menu, live Mexican music by Asoke Latino, and an array of Mexican and fusion dishes. There will also be a lucky draw and an after party, so stick around.

Havana Social

Of course there’s going to be a party at Havana Social. Why did you think there wouldn’t be? Prepare for special tequila cocktails, salsa dance, and the everpresent DJ Pepe. Cinco de Mayo falls on the Havana Social the Viva las Chicas Ladies Night, so B200 will get you mojitos and Cuba Libres all night.
